      DescriptionECM Cell Culture Optimization Array (Colorimetric, 96-Wells)
      OverviewExtracellular matrix (ECM) proteins are produced intracellularly and are subsequently secreted into the surrounding cellular medium, actively regulating a diverse range of cell functions including cell adhesion, differentiation, proliferation, migration, invasion and survival. A primary utility of ECMs in in vitro culture is to promote cellular adhesion while maintaining cell viability and maximizing cell proliferation for downstream cell-based applications. In cases where optimal cell growth conditions are not well defined and critical adhesion protein requirements are unknown, identifying the ideal ECM protein(s) at functionally relevant concentration(s) can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. The 96-well, colorimetric ECM Cell Culture Optimization Array provides a multiparametric assay that allows researchers to: (1) quickly identify ECM(s) that best promote cell-type specific adhesion and (2) pinpoint the optimal ECM concentration required to promote maximum adhesion for a particular cell type.

      How does the ECM Cell Culture Optimization Array work?
      The foundation of our kit is a 96-well microtiter plate containing several commonly-used ECM proteins. Collagen I, laminin, fibronectin, and vitronectin are arrayed in triplicate with concentrations ranging from 0.125 μg/mL to 20 μg/mL. You simply culture your cells on the plate, and use the included reagents to block, stain, and analyze the adhesion capacity with a plate reader. We have extensively tested and optimized this kit on a variety of cell types including HEK293 cells, and human and rodent neural stem cells.
